One thought on “To-Do List”

  1. (Wanted to post this comment on LJ but alas and alack … the security filters at work prevented it)

    I saw it … liked it … and agree (with other LJ poster) it almost makes it … But! It’s not exactly A Princess of Mars retitled …

    It actually takes elements from the first three novels in the JCM series and creates a new story using the characters and situations, while leaving out a LOT of the cultural details and ALL of the chauvanistic (sp?) stereotypes … This Dejah Thoris doesn’t really need to be rescued.

    It’s reminicent of what John Scalzi did with “Fuzzy Nation” last year …

    IMHO … they did the details amazingly well especially Woola and the Brasoomian fliers … it’s probably not what you expect but it’s pretty good despite that.

    There is plenty of blood and gore … so nobody should be disapointed on that score (It got the PG13 rating by making the blood BLUE. 😉
